Teaching students to use correct negative prefixes can be both fun and challenging. This post contains three resources to help teach negative prefixes:
- A mnemonic device anchor chart helps students remember when to use il-, im-, in-, ir-, and ig-.
- A teaching video ~~ I found this video extremely helpful. It’s length is a little under 15 minutes long. This might lose some students, but I found watching it helped me to know how best to present the material to my students.
- A free printable booklet to use in the classroom ~~ This mini book takes just three sheets of paper plus an optional cover for each booklet. Students can use this to make their own reference book.
I ran across this mnemonic device and knew that it would be a great way for my students to remember when to use il-, im-, in-, ir-, and ig-.
